By Adrian Flores

Anvaya Cove Golf Club in Bataan was voted as one of the top courses in Asia by world renowned publication, Golf Digest.

Golf Digest publishes annually a ranking of the best courses in every country (206 countries in all) where there is golf.

More than 1,900 panelists who are well traveled in the golf industry and another 500-plus golf enthusiasts from around the globe help in the coverage of a comprehensive result on a country-for-country list.

The beautiful 18-hole, owned by the family of bilyonaryo Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala, chairman of Ayala Corp., is embraced by the bountiful foilage and tranquil waters of Bataan with its fairways providing an incomparable golfing experience where the nearby mountain ranges of Morong meet the sea.

“We were surprised that we are recognized by Golf Digest,” said Ayala Land president and CEO Bernard Vincent O. Dy.

“Anvaya Cove is doing its best to maintain its status and give golfers a wonderful time on the course,” Dy said.

Aside from Anvaya Cove, also in the list (by ranking) are the Sy family’s Tagaytay Midlands Golf Club, Sta. Elena Golf Club (Makiling course), Manila Southwoods Golf and Country Club (Masters course), Mimosa Golf and Country Club (Mountainview course), Orchard Golf and Country Club (Palmer course), Mimosa Golf and Country Club (Acacia/Lakeview course),Manila Southwoods Golf and Country Club (Legends course), Wack Wack Golf and Country Club (East Course) and Eagle Ridge Golf and Country Club (Faldo course).
